A Few months ago I would have said got to Land Rover Experience West Country (Awliscombe near Honiton, Devon)- www. lre9.com
...... and ask for me as your Instructor
- but Im now in Canada !!!
Seriously, if you dont mind paying a few extra quid, the quality of the Instruction is WORLD class, the curriculum can be tailored to your requirements and if you havent taken a Defender seriously off road you will be amazed at what it will do.
I think you will find it difficult to use your own vehicle at most off road centres - for insurance - believe me it is better to use a nice new Td5 that isnt yours, for the toughest terrain, and see what the Defender can really do, as opposed to ragging the hell out of your pride and joy - the differences are not that great and (a good) Instructor will highlight the main differences, Traction Control etc etc.
I would reccommend a Level one - full day and ask for AJ as your instructor - a good friend of mine and really knows his stuff.
If you dont mind going further afield, head to Land Rover Experience Malverns at Eastnor Castle - some of the toughest terrain in the UK and the same range of courses.
Hope this helps
